Celebrated my husband’s birthday here and the restaurant provided outstanding service and food! Also took great precaution with Covid and had electronic menu to download from own phone, and sanitizer at the table.

The food here is always quite good. THe octopus was grilled to perfection and the whole fish is delicious, but on the expensive side. The salads and vegies are always delicious and the house pinot grigio was very good. We made a reservation for outdoors, but it got cold so we had to come indoors, but we sat near the door so no problems. The staff is very accommodating and very helpful. We will definitely return. Everyone wore face coverings, of course.

Pretty place and a very nice ambiance.
Food was just average and I must say they used too much oil especially on the vegetables.
Service okay not great.
Appetizers were good size portions.

Delicious food and very pleasant and helpful staff. We are becoming regulars. Selfishly, it’s nice to get this quality food and service nearby instead of having to drive to Astoria. (But we’ll still go to Astoria when we have other things to pick up that are available at the great shops there)

We reserved table for 4 for Valentines Day. I received a call after I mad the reservation that it was price fixed menu. I asked what was on it and was fine with choices, many choices for appetizers main courses. I was told you could not order off the regular menu. The night of 2/14 the menu was totally different from what I was told. What was really upsetting is myself and our friends saw other tables being served courses from the regular menu. Our service was excellent, the food was not great. We have eaten at the restaurant many times and love the food and that is why we booked it for Valentines Day with friend who never ate there before.

When we left we asked why there were people eating courses off the menu and the answer was we didn't want to make that know but we allowed it.

Very disappointed but will try one more time.

A definite go-to restaurant for us now in Port Chester. The food was great and the service was AMAZING. They are a little pricey on the fish dishes, but that won't stop of from becoming regulars when we are looking to have Greek cuisine. Highly recommend.

I have always loved Telly's in Astoria, but have friends in Westchester and have recently met them at Telly's Port Chester. We had the same fantastic service and delicious food. It is a really pretty and comfortable restaurant. I highly recommend Telly's for authentic Greek food, great service, and experience.

The wait staff is very kind, but it took too long to get our food. Bread is only served with olive oil which I do not care for. They do not have butter. Our meat and our eggplant were much too greasy. They gave us a complimentary dessert which was appreciated.

We went to Telly's before a show at the Capitol Theater. We had never been here before and were pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful. Everything we ordered was so flavorful. I would highly recommend the grilled octopus appetizer. The prices were a little bit high, but it was well worth it.
We will be back!

Started with a salad. It was over priced and lousy.
Then our main course’s arrived and both were over cooked and uneatable. We sent both back they cooked us new dishes which took an additional twenty minutes and both were average at best.
This was the second and last time I would go to this restaurant. The first time we went was opening night and is was also equally as bad. Telly’s Taverna is
overpriced and lousy.

We sat at the bar. Great corner spot. The whole fish we got was over cooked and poorly de-boned. Fish was expensive for a mediocre piece of fish. Apps were great.

This was perhaps our sixth visit to the restaurant. While the waitress was lovely the kitchen was way too slow. We sat for too long with nothing. We had to ask for bread (delicious). The food was not as unusual and generous as it has been in the past.
